This form of sorcery since it includes violent assault, can be dealt with directly by law; and it is many years since a case has occurred.
Sorcery is a myth, and therefore it cannot logically be punished as a crime.
For the pretence of practising sorcery inevitably involves the practitioner in an attempt to obtain money (or property, or services) under false pretences, the use of threats or intimidation, plotting to disturb the peace, or incitement either to violence or to some other unlawful action.

 The Estate of Sorcery   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Sorcery refers to the practice or result of using charms, spells, or rituals to attempt to produce supernatural effects or control events in nature through the control of spirits.
Sorcery, like science, can be thought of as being composed of two parts: the theory, and the application.
Note that this sort of sorcery is entirely different from things that are inherrently magical: for instance certain kinds of faeries, animals, etc. The secondary domain of sorcery is concerned with the human practice thereof, and is thus powerless over innately magical beings or objects.

Sorcery: the systematic cultivation of enhanced consciousness or non-ordinary awareness & its deployment in the world of deeds & objects to bring about desired results.
Sorcery works at creating around itself a psychic/physical space or opening into a space of untrammeled expression--the metamorphosis of quotidian place into angelic sphere.
Sorcery violates laws which seek to chain this flow--priests, kings, hierophants, mystics, scientists & shopkeepers all brand the sorcerer enemy for threatening the power of their charade, the tensile strength of their illusory web.

 Sorcery
Sorcery is based on psyche, so your attack is only as strong as your mind is. Also, since there is no underlying current in the universe that you're pulling off of, it’s weak against real powers.
To get basic sorcery, you must have a teacher who is a higher psyche, and is experienced (so no teaching the group one session after you get it).
With advanced sorcery, you can get 10 more spells, and the power of each spell is increased by 10 points.

 The Subtle Sin of Sorcery
Sorcery is a term loosely encompassing a number of activities that are forbidden in the Bible.
In Deuteronomy 18:10-12, many of the practices associated with sorcery are named for us: "Let no one be found among you…who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.
While we also must hate the sin of sorcery in all its forms, we must remember to love the sorcerers and never stop praying for their deliverance.

 Sandy Petersen's Sorcery Rules
Most priests cannot learn sorcery, often because it is considered sinful by their deity, but also because the nature of their philosophy and devotion renders the priest unable to alter his mindset in the necessary manner.
Few elves can learn sorcery, as their minds and souls are not keyed into seeing the universe as natural resources to be manipulated by principles of immutable law.
Sorcery requires an impersonal view of the universe and Aldrya is more than just a distraction — she makes the sorcerer's viewpoint an impossibility.

 Sorcery--Beliefnet.com
After the discussion of sorcery on the Shamanism board, I now have three definitions of sorcery in my head, and will try to keep clear on which definition others are using.
2—In Heathern/Asatru usage, sorcery covers all sorts of nonordinary work, including what I generally think of as shamanism (exploration of spirit worlds, working with spirit allies, etc.) and also practices that are particular to the Northern Way, such as rune-work.
People who follow definitions 2 and 3 consider harmful sorcery against another person to be acceptable under some circumstances, such as self-defense, as opposed to a lot of modern shamanists, who consider shamanic attack unethical even when protecting self or others from an attacker.

 Witchcraft and Sorcery
We are told in Revelation 21:8 that sorcerers shall have their part in the "lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." The original Greek word for sorcerer is pharmakeus which means "an enchanter with drugs." This, in turn, comes from the word pharmakeia from which we get our modern English word pharmacy.
The word in its original Greek means the occult, sorcery, witchcraft, illicit pharmaceuticals, trance, and magical incantation with drugs.
It does not matter what you call it, witchcraft, sorcery, necromancy, tarot reading, horoscopes, ouija boards or any one of a hundred other names, witchcraft is rebellion and therefore is a sin against God.
